The new contributions to the electron (muon) anomalous magnetic moment arising in mirror fermion theories have been calculated. Imposing the experimental constraint lowers the current upper bound on the ordinary-mirror lepton mixing angles by a factor of 50, making predictions for mirror lepton production at HERA undetectably small. A way out is to allow for different mixing angles of the L and R field components. Choosing very small right mixing angle compatibility with the anomalous magnetic moment measurement may be easily maintained, while choosing left mixing angles close to the upper limits yields still reasonable HERA cross-sections.
